Regenerative Medicine Injections for Knee Pain
There are biological substances that can help stimulate tissue repair and healing. Your body has growth factors, stem cells and platelets that have regenerative properties for healing. When you harvest these regenerative substances and concentrate them, they can be effective in stimulating tissue repair in targeted areas. At DOCS Health, we offer regenerative medicine for knee pain at our medical center in Los Angeles, CA.
PRP Knee Injections
One option for relieving knee pain is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. If your knee pain is caused by osteoarthritis or damage to the knee components, PRP injections can stimulate tissue repair. PRP is derived from your blood. A small sample of your blood is removed and placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge filters out the platelets into a concentrated plasma, which is purified before it is injected into the knee joint. PRP has growth factors and platelets that can help stimulate new tissue and healing. It has been used for wound healing for decades. The treatment is safe, without any risk of side effects or allergic reactions since it is derived from your body.
Stem Cell Injections
There are many stem cell treatments, but autologous stem cell injections use stem cells harvested from your own body. This reduces risks of rejection of cells harvested from another source. Stem cell injections for knee pain are an effective regenerative medicine option. It can help stimulate healing in the knee and tissue repair, used for injury recovery, degenerative disease and other conditions. Our regenerative medicine specialists can harvest your stem cells, concentrate and purify the cells to be injected into your knee joints.
